This Artery-Scrubbing Juice Works Better Than Statin To Prevent Heart Disease

Statins are prescription drugs used to lower cholesterol. However, they also come with nasty side effects.

With this artery-scrubbing juice, you can easily wean yourself off statins, all while naturally reducing your cholesterol and inflammation levels to help prevent heart disease. If you or someone you know suffers from high cholesterol, send them this recipe!

Cholesterol-lowering statin drugs may lower cholesterol, but it’s the inflammation that proves a higher risk factor for developing heart disease. In fact, statin promoters have admitted that inflammation, not elevated cholesterol, is the cause of atherosclerosis. Reducing inflammation in the body, particularly the blood vessels, is one way to avoid using statin drugs.

Beetroots are wonderful for helping nourish the cardiovascular system. They help lower blood pressure, and remove excess arterial plaque lining arteries and veins. Celery helps flush out any excess wastes in the body, and turmeric and ginger serve as great disease-prevention, all while helping fight inflammation in the body.

In addition, plant foods naturally contain phytosterols, which help lower cholesterol. They’re also high in antioxidants, which fight off free radicals and lower inflammation levels in the body.

Drink this juice once daily. In addition to this juice, reduce or eliminate consumption of meat and dairy products, as well as other inflammation-triggering foods like soy, wheat and refined sugar. If you smoke, thing about quitting, too!

Ingredients: (serves 1)

– 2 beets, peeled
– 1 large carrot
– 4 stalks celery
– 1 lemon, peeled
– 2 inches fresh turmeric root
– 2 inches fresh ginger root
– 2 tsp. coconut oil (melted) – coconut oil improves absorption of turmeric compounds in the body

Method:

Run all of the above ingredients (except coconut oil) through a juicer. Stir in coconut oil. Enjoy!

  1. I have read several discussions about how turmeric is best absorbed, and I do not know what to think by now. Anyway I wonder if coconut oil could increase inflammations, as nearly all fats are said to do: here they say it doesn’t: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-coconut-oil-clog-arteries/, but it does increases cholesterol. Another discussion here: http://veganheath.info/pure-coconut-oil-cholesterol and here: http://www.richroll.com/blog/coconut-oil-panacea-or-artery-clogger/ What a mess! As usual, about foods and nutrition!
